Earlier this year, Bangtan members were officially appointed as the honorary ambassadors for the “2030 Busan World Expo” and have indulged in various promotional activities to boost South Korea’s chances of winning the bid.
They will start with a global-scale Busan concert in October and proceed to other promotional activities post that.
